UsefulChem Writing Partners

Beth Ritter-Guth and I are writing a proposal for NSF's Cyberinfrastructure program:

Using Cyberinfrastructure in Blogs, Wikis, and other RSS Technology to Promote Open Source Science in Higher Education and Workforce Development

The current draft is maintained on our UsefulChem wiki.

A key part of this project involves facilitating the collaboration between scientists and non-scientists using blogs and wikis. As a first step to demonstrate how this can be done we have started the UsefulChem Writing Partners blog. Students from the Humanities will be following the chemistry posts on the UsefulChem blog trying to relate the concepts there to the larger context.

There is also a section in the wiki detailing assignments.

I encourage all our labrats at Drexel to subscribe to the feeds and comment on the posts.
